Two New Projects


Recommended Posts

made templates today for two new projects - the first outings for two new models - the tele-like 'holly' and a lapsteel based on my 'deco' designs

the holly will most likely be an esquire version. im thinking baby blue with white binding. but it might change. body's alder, neck maple/rosewood (shock horror!!!)

lapsteel has rippled sycamore core with limba/walnut sides and walnut board (will have maple 'frets' and markers)

I also like the headstock. But will it fit a tele?

Teles always got a certain classic workhorse-appeal,

the headstock almost seems to be slightly to modern and elegant.

Just a thought though, but i guess that you have planed it out

enough to make it fit and if not you can always change it in the process anyway. :D

Looking forward to seeing more of that.

ah but its not a slab tele-style. its gonna be a bit curvy and contoured so it SHOULD fit. i hope.

got the centre section of the lapsteel cut out and the sides are having their tops glued on as we speak

well ok. "Multi Winner GOTM"

I guess you have a fair bit of experience with that.

Can't wait to see that thing finished!

:D

Very interesting wood-choice for the lappy btw.

The tail-piece is going to be a interesting detail, i bet that would look wicked in gold-plated on that dark walnut. <3

/me wants more details :D

Yeah, i just wait like all the others, but that doesn't mean i can't be exited about it. B)

The jointing of the lapsteel neck to wings looks super neat, I have to ask how did you do it full depth so neatly?

I would have rough cut it then made matching templates to rout against with a template following bit.

But then, I have trouble jointing two supposedly straight pieces together!!

both projects look great.
